Optimization

You’ve considered your options, consulted your primary care physician, and decided bariatric surgery is right for you. Now it’s time to meet the care team, who will help prepare you for a safe, successful surgery.

Our Multidisciplinary Team

Our care team consists of general and bariatric surgeons (who have performed hundreds of bariatric surgeries), certified bariatric nurses, psychologists, nutritionists, and physical and occupational therapists. You can feel confident at Wentworth-Douglass, where you’ll be cared for by one of the best bariatric teams on the Seacoast.

Health Screening

To ensure bariatric surgery is the next best step for your health, we’ll start by walking you through various screenings and a full Health and Physical Examination. If another, more pressing disease is discovered, we’ll prioritize that treatment first.


Preparing Your Mind & Body

Even before surgery, we’ll help you lose weight. You’ll meet with a bariatric nurse, nutritionist, and physical therapist who will help you set a preoperative weight-loss goal. Meeting this goal will result in a safer surgery and kick-start the eating and exercise habits you’ll continue post-operation.

Bariatric surgery can be an emotional experience. That’s why you’ll meet with our team psychologist, who not only helps you navigate these emotions, but also provides behavioral modification classes to help you address some of the unhealthy behaviors that contribute to obesity.


Planning For After

The goal of our care team isn't just a successful surgery, but a successful life after it. We want to help you live your best life, so together we’ll craft a post-surgical health plan that keeps you on track.
